In 2015 I was asked by ImPulsTanz to make a performance in response to the Regarding Actionism exhibit at Mumok in Vienna. I had been hoping instead to show Age & Beauty Part 1 at the festival (still am), so this was a bit frustrating. I wrote a monologue regarding my frustrations and interspersed it with performance bits from previous shows of mine to create a juxtaposition between my work and Gunter Brüs'. In the gallery where we performed the piece I turned off all of the videos except for Gunter Brüs'. I asked Alex Rodabaugh to participate and throughout the monologue he created a live collage with videos of my previous works and other internet imagery including bondage porn. Given that the piece was about the politics and economics of what is seen and not seen in a festival context, I asked my friend and colleague Jeremy Wade, whose work has never been seen at ImPulsTanz, to make a video of himself performing and that ends the piece.
